Grant in Aid VVA Service Officer

As President of the Delaware State Council Vietnam Veterans of America I’m requesting the Delaware General Assembly Joint Finance Committee continue the grant in aid funding we were awarded last year.  Our VVA service officer, a certified counselor from our membership, works  at the VA Hospital in Elsmere Delaware assisting veterans in obtaining VA benefits.  Our office serves all veterans helping them obtain and process disability claims.  The VVA has maintained the service office for several years.  Over a five year period the State of Delaware has contributed $240,000.00 grant in aid to our office, and our Delaware veterans have received more than $8,000,000.00 in benefits from VA claims.  The money veterans receive from their claims assists them with medical issues, rent and food, putting money back into the Delaware economy.

We sincerely thank the General Assembly for their past support, and we hope veteran’s can count on them again this year.

Paul Davis, President
Delaware State Council
